This agreement is subject to change by Lilt in its sole discretion at any time. We will date and post the most current version of this Agreement on the Website. Any changes will be effective upon posting the revised version of the Agreement (or such later effective date as may be indicated at the top of the revised Agreement). If in our sole discretion we deem a revision to the Agreement to be material, we will notify you via the Service and/or by email to the email address associated with your account. Notice of other changes may be provided via the Website. We encourage you to check the date of this Agreement whenever you visit the Website to see if it has been updated. Your continued access or use of any portion of the Service constitutes your acceptance of such changes. If you don’t agree to any of the changes, we are not obligated to keep providing the Service, and you must cancel and stop using the Service.
Service Offerings. Lilt provides a free Starter Service, which is described on the Website. It also offers paid subscription-based offerings, which are currently comprised of (a) a Pro Service for individual freelance translators; (b) a Business Service for large and small language service providers ("LSPs"); and (c) an Enterprise Service for non-LSPs that have signed an API License and Service Agreement with Lilt and therefore is excluded from the provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement covers the Starter, Pro and Business offerings, as described on the Website, and any future Service offerings that are not subject to a separate Lilt agreement (the "Covered Service Offerings").

Subject to your compliance with this Agreement, Lilt grants you a non-assignable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable non-exclusive license to use the Software for the sole purpose of enabling you to use the Service in the manner permitted by this Agreement. When your right to use the Service ends, you must promptly uninstall the Software. You must not work around any technical limitations in the Software. Some Software may be offered under an open source license that we will make available to you. There may be provisions in the open source license that expressly override some of the terms in this Agreement.

General Purpose of Terms: Sale of Service, not Software. The purpose of the Agreement is for you to secure access to the Service. All fees set forth within and paid by you under the Agreement shall be considered solely in furtherance of this purpose. In no way are these fees paid considered payment for the sale, license, or use of Software, and, furthermore, any use of Company’s Software by you in furtherance of the Agreement will be considered merely in support of the purpose of this Agreement.
Fees. You will be responsible for payment of any fee for the Covered Service Offering that you select (each, a "Service Subscription Fee") at the time you create your Account and select the Covered Service Offering (the date on which you make this selection shall be the "Service Commencement Date" for such Covered Service Offering). Except as set forth in this Agreement, all fees for a Covered Service Offering are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Lilt for a Covered Service Offering, other than a free Covered Service Offering, until Lilt accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication. The fees applicable for Covered Service Offering ("Fees") are available on the Website and/or in Lilt’s then current published price list. The price stated for each Covered Service Offering excludes all taxes and charges, unless otherwise stated. You are responsible for any taxes and for all other charges incidental to your use of the Covered Service Offering. You agree to pay the Fees in the currency that Lilt quoted for your Account, and Lilt reserves the right to change the quoted currency at any time.
Payment. You must be authorized to use the credit card that you enter when you create a billing Account. You authorize Lilt to charge you for the Covered Service Offering you sign-up for using your credit card. You agree that we may bill: (a) in advance; (b) at the time of purchase; (c) shortly after purchase; or (d) on a recurring basis for subscription Service. All paid accounts are due the date the invoice is posted on your account. Except as specifically set forth in this section, all Covered Service Offerings are prepaid for the period selected (monthly, yearly or otherwise) and are non-refundable. You must keep all information in your billing account current. You can access and modify your billing account information using the Website. You may change your payment method at any time. If you tell us to stop using your payment method and we no longer receive payment from you for the Covered Service Offering, we may cancel the Covered Service Offering. Your notice to us will not affect the charges we submit to your Account before we could reasonably act on your request. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may assess a late charge equal to the lesser of 1% of the unpaid amount each month or the maximum rate permitted by law if you do not pay on time. You must pay these late charges when we bill you for them. We may suspend or cancel your Covered Service Offering if you fail to pay in full on time.
Automatic Renewal. Your subscription to the Covered Service Offering you select at the time you create your Account will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with this Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a "Renewal Commencement Date") and continue for an additional equivalent period, at Lilt’s then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least (a) thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from Lilt that your Covered Service Offering will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty days from the date of the Lilt notice), by logging into and going to the "Change/Cancel Service" page of your "Account Settings" page. If you do not wish your Covered Service Offering to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact Lilt at firstname.lastname@example.org or log in and go to the "Change/Cancel Service" page on your "Account Settings" page. If you cancel your subscription, you may use the Covered Service Offering until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize Lilt to charge your credit card now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if Lilt does not receive payment from your credit card, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that Lilt may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your credit card until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
Free Trials and Other Promotions. Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to a Covered Service Offering must be used within the specified time of the trial. At the end of the trial period, your use of that Covered Service Offering will expire and any further use of the Covered Service Offering is prohibited unless you pay the applicable subscription fee. If you are inadvertently charged for a subscription, please contact Lilt to have the charges reversed.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY OF A LILT PARTY FOR (A) DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY A LILT PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE; OR FOR (B) ANY INJURY CAUSED BY A LILT PARTY’S FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION.
Cap on Liability. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF LILT PARTIES RELATING TO A COVERED SERVICE OFFERING WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (A) THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID TO Lilt by you during the THREE-month period prior to the act, omission or occurrence giving rise to such liability and (B) $100. THE FOREGOING CAP ON LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY OF A LILT PARTY FOR (A) DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY A LILT PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE; OR FOR (B) ANY INJURY CAUSED BY A LILT PARTY’S FRAUD OR FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION.
Basis of the Bargain. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN COMPANY AND YOU.
Suspension and Termination of Use of the Service:We reserve the right to temporarily suspend or terminate your access to the Service, including any Covered Service Offering, at any time in our sole discretion, with or without cause, with or without notice, and without incurring liability of any kind. For example, we may suspend or terminate your access to or use of the Service for: (a) the actual or suspected violation of this Agreement; (b) your use of the Service in a manner that may cause Lilt to have legal liability or disrupt others’ use of the Service: (c) the suspicion or detection of any malicious code, virus or other harmful code by you or in your Account; (d) scheduled downtime and recurring downtime; (e) use of excessive storage capacity or bandwidth; or (f) unplanned technical problems and outages. If in Lilt’s determination, the suspension might be indefinite and/or Lilt has elected to terminate your access to the Service, Lilt will use reasonable efforts to notify you through the Service and/or by email to the most recent email address associated with your Account.
Term. The Agreement commences on the date when you accept it (as described in the preamble above) and will remain in full force and effect while you use Lilt Properties, unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement.
Prior Use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you used Lilt Properties prior to the date you accepted this Agreement, you hereby acknowledge and agree that the Agreement commenced on the date you first used Lilt Properties (whichever is earlier) and will remain in full force and effect while you use Lilt Properties, unless earlier terminated in accordance with this Agreement.
Termination of Agreement by Lilt For Cause. If you have materially breached any provision of this Agreement, or if Lilt is required to do so by law (e.g., where the provision of the Website, the Software or the Service is, or becomes, unlawful), Lilt has the right to, immediately and without notice, terminate this Agreement and suspend or terminate any Service provided to you. You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in Company’s sole discretion and that Lilt shall not be liable to you or any third party for such termination.
Termination of Agreement by Lilt For Inactivity. In addition to other termination provisions, if your Account is not currently subject to a paid Covered Service Offering with us, we at our discretion may terminate your Account if (a) you do not engage in any activity in your Account within 30 days after becoming a Registered User; or (b) you do not engage in any activity in your Account for any period of 180 consecutive days. In the event of such termination, any of Your Content that you have stored with the Service will be lost.

International Users. Lilt Properties can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Service and Content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Lilt intends to announce such Service or Content in your country. Lilt Properties are controlled and offered by Lilt from its facilities in the United States of America. Lilt makes no representations that Lilt Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use Lilt Properties from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Lilt and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Website, to any products or services sold or distributed through the Website, or to any aspect of your relationship with Lilt, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis; and (2) you or Lilt may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).
IF YOU AGREE TO ARBITRATION WITH LILT, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST LILT ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST THE LILT IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent The Corporation Trust Company, 1209 Orange Street, Wilmington, DE, 19801. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Lilt will pay them for you. In addition, Lilt will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Lilt will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Lilt. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND LILT HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Lilt are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 14.1 (Applicability of Arbitration Agreement) above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. In the event that this subparagraph is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes shall be resolved in a court as set forth in Section 16.5 (Exclusive Venue).
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Lilt, Inc. Attn: Spence Green, P.O. Box 20391, Stanford, CA 94309 or email@example.com, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Lilt username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Lilt account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Lilt.
Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Lilt makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, it will not apply to any individual claim(s) that you had already provided notice of to Lilt.
